Greetings from a Couple of Noob

Hello all! Thank you for letting us be part of this great forum! We've learned so much already from just reading all of your posts. My wife and I just bought a very used (more likely abused!) 13' Scamp trailer in DESPERATE need of some serious TLC...but we have some great plans for it and hope to share our progress with you all!

Tony & Myka

Hi Doug

If you motorhome is anything like this MCC I am afraid you won't find much help for specific problems hereabouts.
1981 35' class A diesel pusher Barth MCC motorhome RV - $7300 (SE Portland) - Topic

Most of the peeps here have (of wanna have) smaller Molded Fiberglass trailers like Scamps, BigFoots and Bolers. And motorhomes are, basically, non-existant.

But there are a few sites like IRV2.com, that may be of more help.

Good Luck

Newbie here

I found this forum by searching on how to repair fiberglass but now i have more questions than when I started! We have a 2012 Spree bumper pull that we successfully gouged and now needs repair. I think the panels are Filon (fiberglass?) but then I started watching all sorts of youtubes on gel coat. Would I have gelcoat or fiberglass? I will post this to one of the threads dealing with repair. Glad I found you!

Hi Nancy

Gelcoat is the surface finish used on different types of fiberglass products.

Filon is a sheet form of fiberglass material with which many conventional construction RV's are covered. It comes in a textured as well as a gelcoat surface finish, here is a link.
Crane Co. - Filon®

However, members here primarily own molded fiberglass trailers and repair of the two materials is somewhat different. You might want to try another site for trailers of that construction such as trying a companion site.... IRV2.com.

If you Google "Filon Repair" you will also find a number of other useful links.

Hi I'm new here and am wondering how to post my camper for sale. I have a rare 1973 Hitch Hut Play Pac fiberglass camper. It is a restoration project I took on and am not able to finish. I am not sure what it is worth. Please help.

Hi, and welcome.

I posted a reply to your other post, as to how to post an ad.
Forums 101 - posting, accounts, basics

If you do a search of the web https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Hi...Pac&gws_rd=ssl, as well as here, you will find reference to a few others that went for sale. Lots of considerations, like condition, location, and time of year will factor into what price you will get.

You could take a look at Fiberglass-RV-4sale.com to look at current listings and there is also a section of past listings to get a feel for what it is worth.
